What's the book about?
Hello! Fat crow! Tells the story of a little fat crow that ventures to an old forgotten cemetery to wake a skeleton named Mister Larry so that he may go and dig up his four brothers to get into mischief on Halloween night. The book measures 8.5x11 inches in size and is forty-four pages long. The story is told in the rhyming styles of Dr. Seuss with fun spooky illustrations done in the style of the old Disney's Skeleton dance cartoon.
How did the book come about?
My love for HALLOWEEN is strong and it's one of my favorite times of year. September 1st in the Flowers household starts the holiday and it doesn't end until well into November. This book came about by a mad scientist mixture of ways. Whenever reading bedtime stories to my daughter we could never really find many great Halloween books. A few were good, some were okay, but most just fell short of what made Halloween so great to us. So one day I thought up this idea of a little fat crow that goes to visit a skeleton to wake him up. Over the years I drew doodles and ideas here and there which finally led to me writing the story out a few years ago. Fast forward to today and as part of my main goal to make long awaited projects, the season is coming up and it was finally time to unleash this idea upon the world!
Below are the exclusive Kickstarter prints, sculpture available, and all the various reward tiers. Enjoy~

Risks and challenges
Every project runs the risk of some issues accuring. I'm hoping I have none, but if some, they are minor. I have ran three previously successful Kickstarters in the past and know what to expect with the printing companies.
For all those first time Kickstarter users, no need to worry your credit cards will not be charged for supporting unless the project is successful and becomes fully funded.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
